Jetset commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

@Quorthon "the NX will determine if they return to form or if they become a third party software maker."

Not sure I'm understanding you there. From everything I've heard, Nintendo is no where near the possibility of becoming a 3rd-party developer, and one console alone couldn't possibly do that considering Nintendo's financial position. They operate debt-free (something few companies can claim) and could run a deficit for 38 years before going bankrupt (as the article below states). The GCN sold poorly and the Wii U is selling poorly compared to the competitors, and even when considering the possibility that the NX might be unsuccessful, Nintendo wouldn't come close to the point of becoming 3rd-party.

This article sums it up nicely: http://wiiudaily.com/2014/03/nintendo-not-doomed/

In fact, Nintendo Life had an article on this at one point: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/03/nintendo_reportedly_has_8128_billion_yen_in_the_bank

I might be missing something, and if I am I'd be glad to hear it.

Jetset commented on LEGO Jurassic World Teaser Trailer and Snippet...:

@SebPlays Yeah, that was disappointing. I still have memories playing Bionicle Heroes on the GCN. Great game in my opinion. It's a shame LEGO moved on, the series had a lot of potential. Would have been awesome to see a Bionicle Heroes 2, or at least some other kind of Bionicle third-person shooter, but alas, seems the franchise is dead. :(

Jetset commented on Mario Party 10:

I'm seeing a lot of negativity here about Mario Party 10 sticking with the vehicle mechanic from Mario Party 9. I grew up playing the series with the classic gameplay of everyone moving separately around the board and it's one of my favorite series of all-time, but I'm also open to change and fully welcomed the fresh, unique twist Mario Party 9 brought. Mario Party 9 innovated, Nintendo tried something different, and I think it worked out perfectly.

Yes, it's different, but that doesn't make it bad. I've had just as much fun playing Mario Party 9 as I've had with every other installment in the series. Just give it a chance, be willing to adapt, and you can have a great time.

And now with Mario Party 10, the series can be enjoyed in HD for the first time. I can't wait to see what the game has to offer in the coming months.

Jetset commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Mario Party 10 is my most anticipated game of 2015. I loved Mario Party 9 and I think it was a great step forward for the series, not to mention a fresh remodel of the core gameplay. And now the series will be in glorious high definition for the first time on Wii U; can't wait. ;)

Runner-ups are Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, Splatoon, and SteamWorld Heist. 2015 is truly going to be a great year for the Wii U.

@Nashew I've never seen the term "Wiimote" used in any of Nintendo's games. Even on the warning screen it says Wii Remote. In fact I haven't seen them use Wiimote anywhere. So yeah, the official term is Wii Remote, it's just people like to say Wiimote. I really can't stand it either. :P

Jetset commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

@TheWiiUGamer No, they aren't making a new console. -_-

They're simply working on ideas for new hardware systems.

It will be about 4 more years until Nintendo's next home console is released, assuming the Wii U's lifespan reaches 6 years, which I have no doubt it will. Who knows, this generation could last longer that previous generations have.

Time will tell.

Jetset commented on Wii U YouTube Application Receives An Update, ...:

@Shy_Guy Exactly. Accessing YouTube on the Wii U Internet Browser is much better than using the actual application itself.

In the YouTube application, I can't even look at every video in a playlist if there's more than a certain amount. And the auto-play feature can't be turned off. Personally, the fact that you can't see every video in a playlist kills the purpose of using it.

You also can't choose video quality in the application as far as I know.

Jetset commented on Mario Party 10:

I'm really excited for this. I love Mario Party 9, and Mario Party 10 is looking even better. And now the series can be enjoyed in HD for the first time ever.

I like that Mario Party 9 introduced a new style of gameplay. It was a fresh new take on the series, and I really enjoy it. I like the old style of gameplay just as much, but I also like that Mario Party 9 innovated. Things change, and I think Mario Party 9 was a great step forward for the series.

Jetset commented on Review: Skylanders Trap Team (Wii U):

@olander4 I have Spyro's Adventure and Giants for Wii and I've experienced significant framerate issues with both of them. However I have SWAP Force for Wii U and haven't experienced any framerate issues playing it. I'm assuming Trap Team should perform perfectly just as SWAP Force does on Wii U. On Wii is another story though.

Game should play great but if you're looking for specifics I'm not sure if it's 30 or 60. I would think 30, but I might be wrong.

Jetset commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update Incl...:

@Turbo857 Agreed. I really like Olimar. It's all about knowing how to play with his specific play style. I just have to get used to him with only 3 Pikmin and his new up special. His Pikmin are plucked in a set order of color now. I like the improvements made, I just have to practice now.

Jetset commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update Incl...:

@DarkLloyd This effects the balance of the entire game. What they are saying is that you have to download the update if you want to play online.

If you're just planning to play the game offline then you won't be required to download the update. But there's no reason you shouldn't. Extra balancing is always good.

Jetset commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update Incl...:

@bro2dragons So from what I hear, Olimar has been significantly downgraded from Brawl to 3DS/Wii U?

Olimar only has 3 Pikmin now and they are plucked in a specific order of color. I would think that helps with managing them better and staying organized in a fight but honestly I'm not sure. I've hardly played as Olimar in SSB for 3DS.

Jetset commented on Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (...:

@Ultra128 Exactly. Instead of catering to the fans, they are catering to children who could care less if Pac-Man World 4 ever happens or not. I'm still hoping for it, but I can't hold my breath. Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures shows no signs of stopping. :(

Jetset commented on Review: Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures 2 (...:

@gloom Believe me, I wanted Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures to be a great new series for Pac-Man video games, and I really hoped that it would live up to the fantastic Pac-Man World series.

Since the announcement trailer for the Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures video game over a year ago, my hopes were high. But as soon as I jumped into the first level of the game, my hopes were crushed.

PAC-MAN and the Ghostly Adventures - Announcement Trailer:

(By the way, the music in the trailer is nowhere to be found in the game.)

When I first saw the announcement trailer, I thought "This looks like the closest thing we're going to get to Pac-Man World 4, so I'm all in." Wow, the disappointment I experienced after I eventually bought the game and played the first level.

I was okay with Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures being different from the Pac-Man World series, but it just doesn't live up to the series at all. And now the second game has released and seems to be nearly the same as the first.

I still have hope for Pac-Man World 4 to come out 'someday'. Or at least some kind of worthy successor to the Pac-Man World series, but Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures is just not it unfortunately.

Until 'someday' comes, here's some nostalgia for any Pac-Man World 2 fans. :)

Jetset commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

@Meaty-cheeky Nice! Yeah, I'm a huge Command and Conquer fan, I grew up with the series. I actually just purchased Command and Conquer: The Ultimate Collection on Origin for a sweet $19.99. Includes all 17 Command and Conquer games! Good to hear you enjoy the series as well; it's under appreciated, really.

Jetset commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

@IxC In 10 years the online functionality of the Wii U will be fine. The Nintendo Network was designed to be a new platform for Nintendo, and unlike the outdated Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, the Nintendo Network will be enhanced over the years, and it will stay online. So all online functionality of the Wii U will be fine. Nintendo isn't going to shut down the Nintendo Network.
